A vehicle collided with the side of the Minor Injury Unit (MIU) at Clevedon Hospital last Friday (June 24) at around 4pm.
No one was injured.
The MIU was closed on Friday evening as a precaution whilst the damage was initially assessed.
The MIU re-opened as usual on Saturday morning, but with fewer treatment rooms available than usual.
We expect this to remain the case for the foreseeable future and would remind anyone needing non-emergency treatment to call 111 first.
Some of our musculoskeletal appointments which happen on the first floor of the hospital from Monday-Friday above the MIU were affected today (Monday June 27) while structural engineers carried out safety checks.
Our musculoskeletal teams contacted service users affected by this issue. We have now been given the go ahead to bring this first floor part of the hospital back into use from Tuesday morning (28 June), so appointments will continue as planned.
The Minor Injury Unit and the Musculoskeletal services at the hospital are operated by Sirona care & health.
Julie Sharma, acting Chief Executive of Sirona, said: “I would like to thank our team at the Minor Injury Unit and our Estates team, who ensured we were able to open as normal on Saturday morning.
“By going above and beyond they made sure the people of Clevedon and surrounding areas continued to receive the much valued and important service provided by the Minor Injury Unit.”
